Apple may claim the wireless earbuds throne with their bestselling AirPods, but Google isn’t that far behind these days with their popular Google Pixel Buds. First unveil in 2017, Google is now four-generations into their wireless earbuds, which offer a competitive AirPods alternative at a more affordable price.

Case in point: you can get the Google Pixel Buds Bro Wireless Earbuds for just $139 right now on Amazon. That’s a 30% discount and the cheapest price we’ve seen all year for these brand-name buds.


The Pixel Buds Pro come in a number of different colors — including a charcoal black, bright blue, a grayish “fog” and an AirPods-style off-white colorway. In our opinion, they’re more comfortable than AirPods too. That’s thanks to the Google Buds’ “flush-to-ear” design, which “hugs” the crevices of your ears to form a tight seal, rather than dangling from them. Three different eartip sizes are included to help you find the best fit.

Audio-wise, the Pixel Buds deliver surprisingly detailed sound from the built-in 12 mm dynamic drivers. Pairing is super easy over Bluetooth, and the earbuds are great for both listening to music and taking calls. Google’s “Adaptive Sound” technology will automatically adjust the volume as you move between quiet and noisy environments, so the music stays consistent and doesn’t drop out. These are also noise-cancelling earbuds, with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology built-in.

Get up to 11 hours of listening time on a single charge, and up to 31 hours with the included charging case — better battery life than AirPods. The Google Buds are water-resistant and sweat-resistant, making them great for workouts and runs.

While a new pair of AirPods will currently run you into the $200 range online, you can get these Google Pixel Buds on sale for just $139 here. We love using these at work and in our testing, they’re great for travel too, with enough juice to get you through a long commute or long-distance flight.

But don’t just take our word for it: the Google Pixel Buds Pro are one of the best-reviewed Google earbuds online, with more than. 70% of shoppers giving the a full, five-star review. See full details here.
